Part VII   Berthe Morisot's paintings. 

Berthe Morrisot was buried at the Passy cemetery, next to Eugene and Edouard Manet. Morisot left her own paintings to her closest friends, who she hoped would always remember her. After her death her, name and achievements faded gradually away. Nearly a century passed before Berthe Morisot came to light as a pioneer in the history of women in the arts.
